With a new package from COMC on the way, I should probably get to the ones that have been sitting in the COMC "to-be-posted" box for months. Time to finish off the basketball portion of that box.
Take the 1965 baseball design, apply it to one of the greatest of all time, throw in a the MSG roof and him playing against another great player, and you've got a beautiful card.
I guess you could have added a cartoon on the back to make it even better, but beggars...choosers and all that.
If Ron Jeremy and George 'the Animal' Steele had a baby.
I love when summer league uniforms make their way onto base cards. The best thing is that despite sporting a Warriors jersey here, he was on the Jazz be the time this card went to press. After a stop in Denver, he's now wearing Golden State colours again.
Sure, this is just a player-worn relic, but that's the first time that particular colour has made is way to my relic collection.
I'm not sure this is a penmanship card, despite the card's subset trying to put it in that direction. Still, this is an interesting signature. I like how the first T continues on to create the S in last name, and that continues with the second T is his last name into the E. Creativity in an auto can be important, as long as it remains legible.
To end it, here's a future Raptors coach from his playing days. Since I already have a card of his as Raptors coach from Topps Total, this can into the misc. basketball collection along with Tiago, even though both have respectable autos.
